Charming sitcom-like short, but not funny
1912 comedies have a nice charm to them, but they rarely make me laugh.
This one has an interesting plot which comes across as a farce-type plot. Elements of it made me think of 1950s TV sitcoms.
The whole thing is more amusing than funny, but still worth seeing.
